Mimi goes to Aspen every year for Christmas. This year she’s in Aspen for free, courtesy Airbnb. It’s not a secret either. Yesterday Airbnb sent out a press release with photos of and details about the $22 million property where Mimi is staying. It read like this:

Queen of Christmas, Mariah Carey is spending her holidays in a $22 million luxury estate in Aspen, courtesy of Airbnb. On the heels of her new show, the launch of her Christmas special, and a sold out successful Beacon Theater concert with notable celebs in attendance, the superstar is finally relaxing for the Christmas break with her kids, boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, along with close friends and family.

Her Airbnb for the Holidays includes 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom, a wood burning fireplace and two living rooms with huge flat screen TV’s on the main floor. After skiing, she can take the elevator down to the game room complete with a wet bar and pool table, a media lounge, wine room, gym and sauna.  The outdoor patio features a luxe dining area and hot tub with breathtaking views of the snowy mountains.  The “All I Want For Christmas” singer spent the first half of her holiday taking advantage of the ski in/ski out access on Aspen Highlands Mountains teaching her kids how to ski, relaxing in their private hot tub and creating her favorite holiday dishes.

She’s been there for a day and she’s almost “spent the first half of her holiday” doing all those activities? According to her Instagram, she actually spent it in her underwear, looking for the best lighting around the tree:

The bigger the tree, the skinnier the Mimi. Note the “courtesy” there in her post though, which would have been part of the contract. Even Mimi has to give social media credits. Since the end of the engagement though, have you noticed? It’s been deal after deal after tour after deal. Mimi really hasn’t stopped in the last 3 months. Part of that is because Christmas belongs to her but I wonder if the other part of it is that she’s making up for lost marital expected income – and how much of that she pre-committed before negotiations went south. Especially since, if you watch the docuseries, it’s obvious how many people she keeps on payroll. 

Here's Mimi getting off her plane again:
